Nasty intermitant clicking noise

I am getting a nasty clicking noise from my PC? It sounds like a Marbel being dropped on a desk?
Any ideas what my problem is?

Open the case and ensure nothing is in the way of the fans on the PSU, Processor and graphics card as well as any case fans present.

Don't want to alarm you, but my hard drive was making that type of noise, well, after the grinding noise, just before it died.

To be honest, forum users warned me to back up, just in case, just as well I did, a week later it went.

Opened case. All clear. Just a little dusty.

Oh! I was afraid that might be the case. I'll back up just in case.
